Bloor is relatively similar to the Mag Mile of Michigan Ave., that's for sure. As for Yonge, there really aren't any true equivalents, though perhaps State St. could be relatively close?

Most of Chicago's retail streets are pretty similar to those in say the St. Lawrence Market section of Toronto, perhaps the Distillery District, those kinds of areas. More neighborhood-oriented.
